Anyone else noticed this? In one on my on-field 5950's with the regular red, white, and blue batterman on the back, upon very close examination - a couple of thick thread endings that stick out in the white silhouette of the batter appear to have a yellowish tinge to them. It's almost as if they have some type of glue residue on them. Not really a huge deal because you can't tell from far away, but wondering if this is common. Can't recall seeing this on any other cap.

Thanks.

I have tons of these. On a lot of my caps I find this. It looks almost like the end of a rubberband. I assume it's pieces of whatever they use under the thread to make it raised.

Yep, several of mine have this issue. With at least one it's very prominent all over the center of the batterman and is probably noticeable even from afar.

Exactly.

I wonder if you can take a thicker needle and try to poke some of these back under the white threads…?

Is it the foam under the threads or actual yellow threads?

I think a little of both. It's hard to notice unless in very bright light. But what appears to be sticking out are thread / glue ends that are yellow. I'm really just intrigued, as I only have one cap (right now) that does this. I'm probably not going to risk screwing the entire logo up just because of a few yellow threads.
